Hmm, I really don't see Gillespie doing all that well. While I know he over performed polls in 2014, he still didn't manage to unseat Warner. Considering that was a heavy Republican year, I would say his 2014 performance, 48.3%, is closer to a ceiling than it is a floor.

I disagree because the national GOP never really invested in that race, thinking it was Safe D.  If they had, we very likely would have a Senator Gillespie right now.  I think that Gillespie can win that race, even if Virginia is trending away from us.

Northern Virginia was pretty kind to Gillespie in 2014. With Trump as president, they won't be nearly as favourable to the Republican. I'd wager on either Democrat easily winning by high single digits or low double-digits. Setting the stage for Tim Kaine winning by over 20% in his re-election campaign next year.

VA-GOV:

50.8% Northam
46.3% Gillespie
2.9% Other

49.9% Perriello
47.3% Gillespie
2.8% Other

52.7% Northam/Perriello
44.2% Stewart
3.1% Other

I think the third-party vote is gonna be much smaller than 2013, although I'd laugh if Sarvis ran again.

VA-HOD:

D+11 with Northam, D+6 with Perriello

NJ-GOV:

59% Murphy
39% Guadagno

NYC-Mayor:

De Blasio landslide

If Perriello somehow wins the Democratic nomination:

49.2% Perriello (D)

If there are no third-party candidates on the ballot (like in 2009):

50.8% Northam (D)
49.2% Gillespie (R)

50.2% Perriello (D)
49.8% Gillespie (R)

NJ-GOV

58% Murphy (D)

New York mayoral election

Are you serious? You really believe VA GOV is going to be so close with Trump at -15 in approval right now?

Well, I'm not saying he will win, but I don't see him getting blown out either, honestly. Gillespie is exactly the kind of Republican who could make a gubernatorial race in a state like VA close, and gubernatorial races are still less partisan than Senate races, even in VA. If this were a Senate race, I'd rate it Safe D of course.

I could also see the results mirroring heatcharger's projection, but there is no way he will do much worse than Trump or lose by double digits IMO.

iirc, Trump actually has an even worse approval rating in Virginia - something like 20+ points underwater. I'm more inclined to think the Democratic nominee wins by a comfortable amount (similar to Clinton, or more), with maybe a ceiling around ~10 points in the best case scenario. Gillespie had a favorable environment in 2014, and while he did well then I don't think that means he will this time. Though, I'd like to see some polls once the candidates are chosen.

Murphy - double digits easy. 12 - 16 points is my guess for now.

Wait, TN Volunteer, you've been saying that VA is out of reach for Republicans. These look like tossup numbers.

Virginia almost never votes in a governor of the same party as the White House,  2013 is literally the only exception in modern history.

Trump is utterly hated in Virginia too,  so the Republican's chances there look pretty darn small, no matter how good Gillespie supposedly is there.  (Which I disagree with,  Gillespie is a mediocre candidate)

It is gone for them in Senate and presidential races, but I believe the right Republican can come close to winning a gubernatorial race. Heck, even Maryland elected a GOP governor.

Also, I had a dream last night in which Northam won by 4 points against Gillespie (50.2-46.3, IIRC), LOL.

Cooch probably wins in 2013 if it wasn't for the Government shutdown.

Gillespie, like Cory Gardner, was a warm body at the right time - well, almost right time in Gillespie's case. Sadly for him (and good for the people of Virginia), I don't think magic is going to happen twice - now people are going to actually pay attention to how much of a partisan hack he is and also affiliate him with the President who Virginians (particularly in Northern Virginia) hate.

I think that HoD prediction is a bit bullish. I think Reps lose 5-7 seats.

That sounds pretty reasonable. To lose 14 seats would take a massive wave, imo. Clinton just barely carried a majority of HoD districts, and it is relatively common for an entrenched majority party to carry districts their party's presidential candidate lost for some time before actually losing them downballot.

I'd put a ceiling for GOP HoD losses at around 10 or so tops, but to be honest, if there is any year where Democrats could max out that ceiling, or even surpass it, it might just be this year. Trump is extremely unpopular in VA and this growing universe of scandals he is enveloped in is really dragging down the GOP brand at a historic pace.

We'll see soon enough Tongue
